Leanne is unable to give further information into topics of interest, she clearly has only the skin layer of the knowledge of the subject she teaches. She repeatedly makes students uncomfortable in the classroom and acts very unprofessionally. She is the one teacher who I would avoid if I met them out of class, as she seems to be a very unpleasant person. She also likes to assign character traits to certain ethnicities and races(ie. She's German so she's on time). Take from that what you will.

She started off fine as a teacher. However, when I had her she changed about half way through and harshly and unjustly graded me when I did in fact do what I needed to do. As a try hard student I found this very unacceptable. This is clearly a maturity and professionalism issue. I hope this behavior changes by the time my brother comes to school... If it doesn't I have no problem telling him to take regular economics.

Mrs. Karalus definitely knows her stuff. Probably the most knowledgeable teacher I have ever had. If you don't understand something she will help you until you do. Study really hard for her tesst because they are very difficult, but she prepares you well for them.

she knows her stuff, but doesn't express clearly. This course killed me, her exams are super hard and she is a tough grader. She doesn't tell you what to improve.

Karalus is one of my favorite teachers that I've had, she really knows what she is talking about and delivers the information well. She really prepared me for later classes. It's a hard class and she is a tough person in general, but that is what makes her awesome. The class itself was also amazingly fun.

She's AWESOME! I mean she's tough, but it builds character. Always willing to help. She does read books on the Holocaust to her young children...

She's tough, really tough, but I know it's making me stronger. Even though her class is depressing, she still manages to make it enjoyable and engaging. I love the blowpipe!
